Phillip Phillips Set For Another Big Week on Billboard 200 (Numbers Thread)

Billboard is predicting another big week for Phillip Phillips‘ album The World From the Side of the Moon due to a $6.99 iTunes discount.

According to predictions, Phillip’s debut could climb from #11 to #3 on the Billboard 200 and sell between 55,000 to 75,000 copies.

Few albums make their  debut during the January doldrums, which accounts for nice chart surge Phillip is likely to enjoy on the BB 200 next week.

This past week, The World From The Side of The Moon, sold 58K copies  for a total of 533k.

ETA: These numbers are based on 4 days of sales-from Sunday to Thursday from  iTunes, Trans World Entertainment, Best Buy, Starbucks, Target and Anderson Merchandisers (about 85% of the merchants). Nielsen Soundscan’s week ends on Sunday and releases sales numbers for the previous week on Wednesday. Billboard releases their chart numbers on Thursday.
